CHAVEZ JUMPS SHARK

BBC:
"Capitalism is the road to destabilisation, violence and war between brothers" said President Hugo Chavez during his SEVEN HOUR TV show [emph. added]. He also said: "... Latin American countries were moving towards socialist economic models instead of US-style capitalism. "
NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER THAN THE TRUTH; capitalism is the road to prosperity; socialism is the road to serfdom. That Latin America is moving toward the Left is a testament to their ignorance and their suceptability to demagoguery (like Chavez's) and their propensity to love TYRANTS AND STRONG PATERNALISTIC STATES and to fear and hate Yankees and "Gringos" - in other words: to their racism. YUP: Chavez and Fidel and Mugabe are all racist demagogues who use anti-Americanism/anti-colonialsm to hold on to power. (REMINDER: the USA, Canada, Australia, and India are all former colonies - yet all are prosperous - India most recently; therefore colonialism CANNOT be the cause of other former colonies continued poverty. SOCIALISM IS, NOT COLONIALISM.

I challenge Mr. Chavez - or anyone else - to name one single solitary socialist nation which has an economy which out-performs or has a higher living standard than the "evil, selfish" captitalistic, free-market Hayekian economies of the USA or the UK. Even China - a socialist nation - has only grown its economy and improved the material living standards of its people since after it introduced free markets and capitlaism (after 50 years of socialism had utterly BANKRUPTED IT). Ditto India.

Chavez is a moron and a fool and a tyrant and an ass. What Chavez advocates is nothing more than a forced march on the road to serfdom. The fact is, that since he's taken over Venezuela's standard of living has markedly declined. Socialism ALWAYS does this. Look at Cuba or Zimbabwe or North Korea. They SUCK because they are socialist.

Chavez should be overthrown (at the very least) and replaced with someone who knows something about government and economics, someone who at least knows that for prosperity take hold and markets to grow, governments must get out of the way of the economy and entrepreneurs.

The reason Latin American nations are moving toward socialism is because the masses don't want to have to make any decisions or take responsibility for their actions. Evaluating your choices and making decisions regarding health care, education, employment, economics, and so is hard work. Why not let someone else sweat the hard stuff, while you sit back and sip your tequila?

Talking about racism, the argument that Latino America is moving toward socialism because of is laziness, is the most racist that you can come up with. And the stupid argument that colonialism was good forget to mention that all of Latin America, Africa and Asia were victims to colonialism, to claim that Canada, USA and Australia are doing good and excuse colonialism all together is to forget history. Obviously this site is a good example of IGNORANCE AND BIGOTRY. You might think that you are defending capitalism, but with poor arguments like this one, you are just giving all capitalists a bad image. Ignorance and bigotry are a losing combination for any cause.

i am not a bigot. you are an ASSHOLE.

cultures are different - even a liberal asshole like you must accept this FACT.

latino culture is more paternalistic.

this is a fact.

it has negative effects on some social issues: principally the fact that they are not INDIVIDUALISTIC enough.

this is NOT RACIST; it is cultural.

It is the reason that most of latin american has yet to develop a good EFFECTIVE democracy.

I attacked your arguments not you personally, you are unable to debate so you need to use insults.
I will not descend to your level, I will just point out that your "paternalistic" theory about Latin America is a simplistic and insufficient one. You can not analyze geopolitical and historical issues using second rate psycological mumbo jumbo. If you really want to defend Capitalism, Free Market economics and the Democratic system, you need to educate yourself and learn about the subject on which you are going to render an opinion about. I guess you think that blogging is like talk radio, in that medium the "sound bite" plays well given the limited attention span of the listener, that dosnt's work as well with the written language. That is why most Rush and Hannity followers love radio and TV, they are not actually able to read.

Debt reduction can be done in many ways. A recent method being used is to buy some debt reduction software. You can purchase debt reduction software online or at a computer software store. The software usually comes with a debt reduction calculator to help you decipher how quickly your debt will be paid off in accordance to your monthly balance payments. Similarly, there are also debt reduction books you can purchase at your local bookstore. The best route for help with debt reduction is to go to see a credit counseller or a debt reduction counseller.

Gonna take off on a trip for the weekend. A leisurely weekend. But the weird thing is, that while I was out search for certain sites that would show me spots to hit on my way to where I am going, I found this interesting site on Mortgage uk rates and you would not believe how distracted I became from my initial purpose. I almost got so carried away, I almost forgot to leave on my trip. Could you believe that? I guess that site was a little more interesting than what I was doing or something reminded me that I was looking for this in the first place. Funny how the mind works.
